"Joshua vs Wilder"


BY COACH JAY Brooklyn, New York and the Barclays Center hosted the biggest Heavyweight title fight in a decade, with Deontay Wilder and  Luis Ortiz as the main event. This fight has been in the making for quite some time now, it was met with a major obstacle when Ortiz failed a drug test in 2017. Wilder was then forced to give Stiverne a rematch that ended in a first round humiliation when Wilder demolished Stiverne in the opening round. Deontay Wilder never lost his desire to fight Ortiz, he's always maintained that he is the most feared Heavyweight in professional boxing. Luis "King Kong" Ortiz is the best person to say if he believes that Wilder is the Heavyweight he brags to be, after giving Deontay Wilder what was most definitely the toughest challenge he's encountered as a professional.  Ortiz seemingly had Wilder on the verge of a knock out in the seventh round, but Wilder wasn't planning on going down. After surviving Ortiz's best efforts, Wilder entered round eight with confidence and the determination of a warrior, as he dropped Ortiz several times to finally end the fight in a tenth round stoppage to bring about Wilder's seventh title defense. This win against Ortiz has some people asking the question, "Will the Joshua fight happen, and when?" Many boxing enthusiasts have said that Ortiz may have lost but he definitely showed Joshua the blue print on how to beat Wilder. Both Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder have both shown that they have the ability to be tested and the will to overcome adversity.  It's always been said that "Styles make fights", but one must wonder, what style is Wilder going to bring to one of the sports best boxing Heavyweights since the reign of champions like Evander Holyfield and Lennox Lewis, if he gets an opportunity to meet the British superstar Anthony Joshua. With Deontay  Wilder taking care of business and securing his WBC Heavyweight title in Brooklyn, the world now awaits the outcome of the March 31st unification bout between Anthony Joshua and Joseph Parker with the WBO, IBF, and WBA Super belts on the line at Principality Stadium. The sport of boxing was once defined by the glorious Heavyweight division and the champions who gave their all to the sport and the fans who watched as they lay it all on the line to show that many shall come, but few shall hold the gold and be crowned a World Champion. The sport of boxing and its fans need to see that caliber of Champions go toe to toe in order to bring the life back to our glorious sport. ​
